WMGS November Monthly Meeting
Wednesday, November 4 from 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
At our November 4th monthly meeting, Edwin Strickland II, will be presenting “The Rise and Fall of Hampshire County (Massachusetts).” Following a discussion of the steps from exploration to incorporation in New England, Ed will follow the history of Hampshire county (which at times extended from Worcester, Massachusetts west to
the Hudson River and from within present Connecticut into Vermont) from its creation in 1660 onward. He will cover the various state boundary disputes, discuss the division of the four present counties of Western Massachusetts, and provide a guide to finding their records.
